NWS: Widespread icy roads expected

National Weather Service Portland (NWS) issued a Special Weather Statement, calling for icy roads for a large portion of the Pacific Northwest.

According to NWS:

Cold air is filtering across the region from east of the Cascades
tonight. Any liquid water remaining on surfaces this evening will
freeze overnight. This will result in potentially hazardous travel
on untreated roads and sidewalks as early as 10 PM Saturday night,
but more likely after midnight. Please slow down tonight and
exercise extreme caution as it will be very difficult to see where
surfaces are icy.

The Special Weather Statement was sent out at 5:42 p.m. Saturday, and predicts icy roads as early as 10 p.m.

NWS predicts the low temperature for Lincoln City tonight at 29 degrees.

  1. 29 f @ 8am. Not so bad, maybe my oleander fared better this time than the last freeze, there are reasons you have to buy certain plants online-

  2. You can just cover your oleander with a sheet, towel etc. Having lived in the Mt do Idaho for 30+ years; this was the way I covered my plants.

  3. Thanks Donna- I end up with particular plants that aren’t meant for this climate
    to use as food for caterpillars in my entomology hobby.
    For me, the plants either make it, or not, it takes a fair sized bush or tree to
    be useful. I may have the only oak trees in Lincoln city- at least they can take the cold. This is year 3 I think for the oleander.
